The New Inquisition: Irrational Rationalism and the Citadel of Science by Robert Anton Wilson
Novelist, teacher and former Playboy editor Robert Anton Wilson brilliantly skewers those third rate scientists who try to fob off fourth rate garbage as science. "By New Inquisition I mean… certain habits of repression and intimidation that are becoming increasingly commonplace in the scientific community today. In criticizing what I call Fundamentalist Materialism, I am opposing the Fundamentalism, not the Materialism. This book… is deliberately shocking because I do not want its ideas to seem any less startling than they are."
